IMPORTANT UPDATE: Albemarle Regional Health Services (ARHS) announced that it is canceling the first dose Moderna clinics scheduled for Friday, January 29 in Currituck, Gates, Hertford, Pasquotank, and Perquimans counties due to anticipated wind chills.
The clinics had previously been pushed back to Friday from Thursday because of inclement weather.
ARHS says it plans to announce next week’s schedule for both first and second dose vaccine clinics on Friday.
10 On Your Side will also post the information on WAVY.com.
Vaccines will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis to those who are eligible. Currently, the priority vaccine groups are health care workers in group 1, and individuals over 65 years old in group 2.
The health service asks that people get the vaccines only if they live in the ARHS region, which covers Pasquotank, Perquimans, Bertie, Camden, Chowan, Currituck, Gates and Hertford counties.
They also ask only people in groups 1 and 2 come to get vaccines at this time.
ARHS held drive-thru Pfizer second dose clinics in Pasquotank and Currituck counties this week.
The clinics were only open to those who received their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine on or before Thursday, Jan. 7.
